Report - External Series

Christophersen, Mona; Jacob Høigilt; & Åge A. Tiltnes (2012) Palestinian youth and the Arab Spring, NOREF Report. Oslo: NOREF.

This report investigates young Palestinians’ views of their economic and political situation and their interest and level of engagement in politics with reference to two momentous political events in 2011: the Arab Spring and the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly. A main question is whether the Occupied Palestinian Territories are experiencing a reinvigoration of youth activism.
